Thank Week 2015
CHRISTIANSBURG – During the week of February 9th, the United Way of Montgomery, Radford and Floyd hosted its first ever “Thank Week.” This week-long event celebrated contributors, volunteers and sponsors for their time and support to the community.
Board members and United Way staff surprised some of the contributors from this past year with cookies, muffins, balloons, and checks that read “Thanks a Million”. Executive Directors from partnering agencies including Bev Walters with NRV CARES and Michele Brauns with the Community Health Center of the New River Valley wrote personalized thank-you notes to express their gratitude to individuals who have made a big impact in the past year as well. read more
Companies thanked for their contributions included National Bank of Blacksburg, Corning, Brown Insurance, Old Town Printing Inc., Campus Automotive, MOOG, and Kollmorgen, among many others.
Kymn Davidson-Hamley, Executive Director of the United Way of Montgomery, Radford and Floyd described the United Way’s desire to thank members of the community in this way, “We want to recognize the strong contributions of volunteers and donors to our organization for our community. Our mission is to unite people and resources to improve lives in the New River Valley, and without volunteers and loyal donors, this mission would be impossible. We are deeply appreciative of everyone who helps with programs geared toward meeting our mission year-round. These dedicated local citizens drive our key program - workplace campaigns and community investment - as well as our supporting community programs like Stuff the Bus, Holiday Food & Toy Drives, and VolunteerNRV. We can never say ‘Thank You’ enough to everyone, but we would like to. We’re trying to do something a little special with ‘Thank Week’ to reach as many folks as possible who help our United Way achieve its mission.”
Whether you donated or volunteered, the United Way of Montgomery, Radford and Floyd would like to thank you for your continuing support. You are making a difference in the New River Valley!
